is california's proposition 8. this was the ballot proposition passed, overturned two years ago. what it says is that even though a california court said that marriage was legal in that state, it banned gay mrarnlg in california. now if the court grants that case, then it might -- might -- get to the fundamental issue whether states can, in fact, ban same-sex marriage. my predictions, chris. it's a virtual certainty the court will take the doma case. courts have overturned an act of congress. it's much less certain they'll take the prop 8 case and we'll only find out today which cases they're going to take because if they're not going to take any cases we won't hear about that until monday. all we get are the grants. no guarantee today but the justices are meeting in a closed door conference. these cases are on the agenda. so we may find out as early as today, chris. >> nbc's justice correspondent pete williams. for the record i would watch a show called pete's predictions. thank you, pete. >> reporter: you'd be the one. >>> next, we'll head to the hill to talk to members from both sides abou

california just reelected herself the other night, a veteran of the intelligence committee said she wished that president obama had not accepted petraeus' resignation, that he didn't need to leave office for an indiscretion of that kind. the president didn't immediately accept it, but ultimately he gave in to the logic that petraeus himself was emphasizing, which is it simply wasn't tenable for him to stay in the job having done what he did. and i think everybody is disappointed because petraeus's talents are recognized by people in both parties and have been for years. but he is -- he is paying a very, very stiff price for the mistake that he made. and the white house is simply going to have to roll with that. >> and there are a lot of folks, john harwood, this afternoon, especially out there on twitter and the blogosphere who are raising questions about all of this happening so close to the time he was set to testify next week, that closed door meeting on the hill regarding benghazi. >> everything we know about this so far is that is simply the speculation. and with the touch of paranoia
